Philipsprize for Mathematics to René Pannekoek
René Pannekoek received the 2013 Philipsprize for PhD students in Mathematics at the Dutch Congress for Mathematics 2013 in Nijmegen. It was the 8th time that this prize, 1000 Euro and a trophy, was awarded.
From all applications, a total of six PhD studens were selected. These 6 students all got the opportunity to present their research to the jury at the Dutch Congress for Mathematics. The jury unanimously assigned René as the winner of the Philipsprize, with which the trophy went to a PhD student of Leiden University for the 3rd time. Predecessors were Joost Batenburg (2006) and Johan Bosman (2007).
